I heard a promo by FS1 for Saturday's Dodgers @ Tigers broadcast.  Something along the lines of "watch Cody Bellinger and the Dodgers steamroll to the playoffs while Victor Martinez and the Tigers try to stand in their way".

Victor Martinez?  They cannot find anyone else on the Tigers to promote?

August 16, 1903 - The Tigers defeat the New York Highlanders 12-8 in front of 6,000 fans in Toledo.  The team has moved the game to avoid the blue laws preventing baseball from being played in Detroit on a Sunday.  Tigers outfielder Sam Crawford goes 5-for-6 at the plate to help bail out pitcher George Mullin, who gives up all 8 runs.

August 16, 1968 - Pitcher Denny McLain wins his 25th game of the season as the Tigers blank the Boston Red Sox 4-0 in Fenway Park.  Tigers catcher Bill Freehan ties a major league record in the game by being hit by pitches in three consecutive at bats on his way to racking up 24 HBPs on the season, also tying a major league record.  Red Sox pitcher Jim Lonborg is the only player to tally more than one hit off of McLain.

August 16, 2016 - Racked by injuries to numerous players, the Tigers attempt to upgrade their bench by acquiring utility infielder Erick Aybar from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for minor league catcher Kade Scivicque and struggling veteran Mike Aviles, who is immediately waived by Atlanta.  Aybar will bat .250 with 1 home run and 8 RBI in 29 games with the Tigers while recording a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage in appearances at second base, shortstop, and third base.  He will leave the Tigers as a free agent following the season.

I think with Victor's extremely turtle like mobility, the word"stand" is a perfect word association.

That Aybar blurb is really stretching it to reach "significant happenings on this day in Tigers history" status.

Guilty.  Not much of interest on August 16, unless one just picks a random season and reports.  I thought about that...but I didn't think anyone would be much concerned with the 1988 Tigers beating the Red Sox 18-6 on the strength of 5 RBI each from Darrell Evans and Chet Lemon...

They did tag Clemens for 8 ER in 1 1/3 IP.  It probably sent him into a rage.

There is a baseball game tonight. 

Trying to think of who on the team is worth watching.

McCann, Mahtook, Greene, Jimenez are because of their development.

Fulmer, JV, and Upton because they are good.

Anyone else? Maybe when Nick plays some RF.

That Cabrera is not this list, and rightfully so, underscores what a tragic season this has been.

Cabrera has a negative oWAR.  He's barely at a .400 SLG.  He has an ISO of .152.

Even with the injuries he was still an awe-inspiring hitter right up to the end of last year.

Hard to believe.

I hope so.  Sanchez is pitching, so its hard to tell.  FSD is going to broadcast something Tiger related.

Boyd and Zimmermann are worth monitoring, for different reasons. 

That's probably it. 

Cabrera is hurt and Victor is a wight. Iglesias and Kinsler are who they are.

Maybe...

Game--A form of play or sport, especially a competitive one played according to rules and decided by skill, strength, or luck.

The words "competitive" and "skill" concern me, especially with recent performances.

They haven't had any "luck" either.

McCann .309/.356/.473 vs. RHP since the AS-break. Can he keep it up? Yes.

He's the McCannical man.

 With Sanchez on the mound especially in this park where he has a 14.00 earned run average, I feel like I'm watching a slasher movie and then teenagers have just had sex and the killer is going to slaughter them. 

 As I type it's a two run homer
